This is fast food you can feel good about eating. Children and grown-ups alike will love not only the crispy chicken, but also dipping it (and some veggie sticks) in the sweet, tangy sauce.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Place flour in a shallow bowl, and egg in a second one; season both with salt and pepper. Pulse cereal and oil in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Season with salt and pepper; transfer to a third shallow bowl.

  • Coat chicken: first in flour, shaking off excess; then with egg, letting excess drip off; and finally in cereal mixture, pressing to help it adhere. Place on a baking sheet, and bake until light golden brown and cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes, turning over halfway through.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together sour cream, mustard, and honey; season with salt and pepper. Serve tenders and vegetables with creamy honey mustard on the side.

My kids love these chicken tenders! But not the sauce. They think the sauce is too spicy.

My husband loves when I make these! I pair with the "Lighter Macaroni and Cheese". I like that the crisp rice cereal gives flavor and makes these tenders seem not like a "light" tender. I don't care for Dijon mustard so we just use a honey mustard which works very well. Wonderful flavor!

We love it -- added parmesan cheese, garlic and italian seasoning to the cereal mixture. It was great too. Family favorite

Camilove, I don't know if you'll see this or not, but we just make our sauce without dairy since my daughter is dairy allergic. We've also mixed in mayo with good results.

Camillove Try Greek yogurt, especially the non-fat version. It has a little tangy taste and is think

to camillove, you can replace the sour cream with tofu sour cream, it's non dairy.

Definitely a favorite at our home. My family loves a low-fat ranch mixed with a touch of pre-made pesto for a zesty taste. Served with fresh raw veggies makes the perfect meal.

Always looking for kid friendly meals. These sound great, although, I cook for a kosher household and any suggestions for replacing the sour cream in the honey mustard dip...perhaps yoguet???

These are simply excellent, and a good way to show that good fresh food prepared simply can be much better than frozen. Our girls love these. I make theirs first, then add cayenne and other spices to zing them up for my husband and me.

I used panko instead of the rice cereal, and the tenders still turned out really well.
